. michelle obama speech's last night reminding voters she had a pretty good speech at the republican convention in tampa. getting back to what paul ryan said on the campaign trail, i think the romney campaign really sees this as a gift of what happened yesterday on the sunday talk shows when those obama campaign advisors were having trouble answering the question are we better off than four years ago. president obama was quoted in usa today giving himself an incomplete on the economy. even though mitt romney has not been out, his campaign has opinion hard at work making hay on those comments. >> thank you. cnn just heard from the head of the navy seals about that controversial book out today about the bin laden raid. wait until you see the scathing memo he sent out to all seals. you'll only see it here on cnn. i was talking to my best friend. i told her i wasn't feeling like myself... i had pain in my pelvic area... and bleeding that wasn't normal for me. she said i had to go to the doctor. turned out i had uterine cancer, a type of gynecologic cancer. i received treatment and we're

at the democratic convention. we know that lots of folks saying michelle obama knocked it out of the park, bill clinton and obama obama were no slouches either, of course, so who other than someone named clinton or obama really impressed you? >> i think that one of the other speeches that really stuck out for me, and i know was a big hit at the convention and with folks around the country was our keynote speaker, the first latino ever for a dnc keynote speaker, julian castro. and he really, i think, impressed the crowd not just with his personal story, but with his argument about how his personal story was not just the quintessential american story, but it was a story that was possible only in this great country and that the opportunities that were available to him to make him successful are the opportunities that are at stake in this election and that it was obama's policies that he's put in place and will continue to put in place to make sure that that american dream that he is now fulfilling is going to be available to everybody, regardless of how much money you make, where you come from, wh

. as for the big speakers, let's go through the schedule. michelle obama, she's one of the major speakers on tuesday night. as is the keynote speaker julian castro. he is the mayor of san antonio, texas. hes somebody you can get to know pretty well. on wednesday, former president clinton will be the big speaker. thursday, we move from here to time warner cable arena to the football stadium. that's where haven't joe biden and president obama will give their renomination addresses. a little noisy here. we have buses going by. >> that's the way it goes. right when you start talking, all the activity has to begin. >> exactly. >> meantime we hear that vice-presidential pick on the republican side paul ryan is going to be in north carolina next week. will his arrival coincide with the convention? to f. if so, why? >> the romney campaign announced that paul ryan will be in greenville, north carolina, a couple hours from here. he'll there be for a rally. the convention starts the next day here. vice president joe biden was supposed to be in tampa, florida, last monday when the republican conventi
wrestler picked up the first lady michelle obama. what is it with picking up the obamas? cnn political director mark preston joins me now. >> what do you think the secret service was thinking when that gentleman decided to pick the president up like that? >> i don't know. what is it? it's so bizarre. that pizza shop owner, i guess, was a republican, right? >> he was overcome with a little bit of excitement. who wouldn't be excited, i guess, if the president showed up at your pizza shop. >> he said as a republican he voted for obama in the last election. i take it he's going to vote for him again this time. mark, let's talk about this latest poll and the latest fundraising figures for the president. he has a lot to be happy about. >> he sure does. he's certainly seen a bump from what we've seen from this gallup poll. as you said, we'll have our own poll in just a few hours that will really gauge where we are in the race after both conventions are over. he has good news when it comes to fundraising. in the month of june, in the month of july president obama was outraised by the republica
michelle obama, the chair is the most influential woman that the white house is listen listening to and "the new york times" article calls her the other power. good to see you valerie. >> well, it is so good to see you on the third and the final day of of the convention. >> at love oenthusiasm and it has been hectic. tell us about the prep ratiaratf the president's speech? >> well, he has an opportunity to speak honestly and directly to the american people about what he has been accomplishing over the last four years and the road map for the future and it will crystallize the sharp comparison of his plans in comparison to governor romney's. as president clinton said to eloquent eloquently last night, governor romney wants to double-down on trickle-down and we know it does not work. the president believes in growing a strong and robust middle-class, and providing the ladders of opportunity for those not yet in the middle-class and want to work hard and have that american dream, and so he will contrast those two very differedi different visions and lay out how to get us there. >> w
. i think the president and his family have already -- there they go. president obama and michelle obama boarding the plane taking off for portsmouth, new hampshire where of course president obama will hit the campaign trail. that is where dan lothian is already waiting for the president to arrive. so i'm sure the white house has already put out a statement on this jobs report. what's it saying? >> this is not the kind of numbers that would really put wind in the sails of the president as he bounces out of the democratic national convention. i've heard from two officials who tell me the president will in fact address the jobs numbers during his first stop here post the dnc convention here in new hampshire. so he will be addressing those job numbers. we'll be listening for what he has to say. we heard from the president's economic adviser who said in a statement in part, quote, while there is more work, there remains to be done, today's employment report provides further evidence that the u.s. economy is continuing to recover from the worst downturn since the great depression going
complaints are growing. does michelle obama's initiative give students enough to eat at school? "newsroom" starts now. >>> good morning. thank you so much for being with us. i'm carol costello. we begin this hour with president obama about to face two very different audiences. just minutes from now the president will address the united nations general assembly, but it's not just world leaders who will be listening to his speech about foreign policy. american voters may also tune in to his comments amid a spike in international hot spots. the latest from iran, they have reportedly test fired anti-ship missiles in the waters off its southern coast. it's possibly troubling for several reasons. according to an iranian news agency, the drill was close to u.s. led naval exercises in the persian gulf. the test comes amid spiking tensions with israel and mutual threats of military action, and it comes on a day when both presidenobama and the republican nominee, mitt romney, deliver key speeches on u.s. foreign policy. as i said, mr. obama is about to speak momentarily. mr. romney spoke in the las
pictures were published of the wife of president obama. i think michelle obama would take a different view about pictures of her topless than she might about someone on a beach in miami. i think that's the key difference. >> well, some might argue and probably very few, but some might argue that even if you're in a private home, is it ever wise to go outside of that home and take your top off? >> i don't think anyone would disagree with that. i have worked for celebrity clients for over 20 years. if any celebrity client came to me and asked me whether it was ever wise to take their top off in a public place anywhere, i would say absolutely not. so i think kate, the duchess of cambridge was unwise to do that. i think, however, that the punishment is inappropriate. it does not seem to me that justifies a worldwide set of pictures on the basis of and moments in discretion where she thought she was safe and where she thought she was private. >> well, it just comes on the heels of the prince harry scandal and the nude pictures taken of him in a private hotel room. >> well, i think this is absol

and that is why they are doing. michele bachmann the other day was criticizing president obama, ashleigh, for saying that obama can go to new york, and he can go to new york and has time for letterman, but he does not have time for benjamin netanyahu, the prime minister of israel. and who is going to get you more votes? a tense meeting with benjamin netanyahu or go on letterman to get votes from that show? i think that the answer is cl r clear. >> the little box on the right-hand side of the screen is making news as well. i want to draw your attention, wolf, and the viewers to the box of the touchdown of the space shuttle "endeavour" flying this morning from kennedy space center making a stop for refueling and little as it goese final resting day in los angeles. this is the final trip, and the vistas are spectacular. we will take a break and talk more on the other side. one is for a clean, wedomestic energy future that puts us in control. our abundant natural gas is already saving us money, producing cleaner electricity, putting us to work here in america and supporting wind and solar.
in chief. ladies and gentlemen, president barack obama. >> secretary panetta, general dempsey, members of our armed services and, most importantly, to the families, survivors and loved ones of those we lost, michelle and i are humbled to join you again on this solemn anniversary. today we remember a day that began like so many others, arrive at school and commutes to work, early flights and familiar routines, quick hugs, and quiet moments. it was a day like this one. a clear, blue sky, but a sky that would soon be filled with clouds of smoke, and prayers of a nation shaken to its core. even now, all these years later, it is easy for those of us who lived through that day to close our eyes and to find ourselves back there. and back here. back when grief crashed over us like an awful wave, when americans everywhere held each other tight, seeking the reassurance that the world we knew wasn't crumbling under our feet. eleven times we have marked another september 11th come and gone. eleven times we have paused in remembrance and reflection, in unity, and in purpose. this is never an easy d
questions. >> in my interview with president obama, i talked to him about why he hasn't built more relationships with some of the washington insiders who could have helped get his agenda through, and here is what he said. >> sometimes, michelle and i not doing the circuit and going out to dinners with folks is perceived as us being cool. it actually has more to do with us being parents. when we are in town here in washington, in the evenings, 6:30 we want to be at the dinner table with our kids, and i want to be helping with the homework. that is sometimes interpreted as, me not wanting to, you know, be out there slapping backs and wheeling and dealing. it has more to do with the fact of the stage we are at in our lives. >> if you are re-elected the girls may have their own weekend plans and nopt wanting to hang out with mom and dad. >> yes, it has already started to happen. >> will you do more outreach, or back slapping, with members of congress? >> my hope is getting past this election, people will have an opportunity to maybe step back and say, you know what, the differences tha
